A Sparkly Horse and a Camo Flower


The CAS challenge on SCS is celebrating its 200th challenge with a big birthday celebration during December. There are lots of challenges that posted this weekend and they run through December. Challenge C is to use the Dazzing Diamond Dust technique. I couldn't get get to my Embossing supplies due to the continued remodeling in my craft room, so I had to cheat and use glossy accents and some Dazzling Diamond Dust. If you are interested in joining the challenge here is the link and the code: CAS200PARTYC.

I used my very favorite stamp set from SU!, Wild Wild West. It retired several years ago and I totally love it. I needed a birthday card for my niece, Holly. She loves horses so I focused just on the horse in the canyon scene. I had to cut out DA MAN, but he can't ge the star all the time - LOL!


This card was done for the Featured Stamper challenge at SCS. This week's Featured Stamper is Mayodino. I cased her card here. This is for my husband's birthday so I used the sleeve off one of his hunting shirts (he cut it off not me so don't worry). I know he is going to laugh hysterically when he gets this. I used the Tattered Flowers die from Tim Holtz to make the flower.

Have to run do some cleaning which I have been neglecting. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by and many Hugz!

  1. Two beauties, Nancy :) Love the negative in the star (sparkly cowboy for Mz. Pamzi by any chance LOL!) and love all the woodgrain on the second. Lovely bow and flower too!

  3. How lovely and rustic these are, Miss Nancy! I like the bold plaid ribbon on the first one...goes well with the horsies.

  5. Two outstanding cards. I agree that the man doesn't always need to be the star. Love that big ribbon. Your husbands cards is a keeper that's for sure. You'll have to let us know what he says about it, if he can stop laughing that is.

  7. Both cards are so nicely done. You are so fortunate to have that fantastic stamp...great job using it. I've never seen a card made with that stamp that I did not like it...and yours is great too.
